Financial Statement Analysis 1

About the Program

Financial Statement Analysis (FSAI) is a method of interpreting accounting data in an effort to understand the current financial performance of an entity and project its future health. FSAI keeps the evaluation process simple, but requires a working knowledge of basic accounting principles. The emphasis of the course is on analyzing financial statements issued by companies using fundamental ratio analysis techniques and analysis of the statement of cash flows. These evaluations can be used to determine the operating efficiency, profitability and financial risk of a firm.
